Tutorial: Embedded videos in posts (YouTube,Veoh, Vimeo,etc)

A new functionality of this site is the easy ability to add video to be embedded and displayed in your posts.

Whenever you post, you're present with a series of buttons above the text field on a new posting page, known as BBCodes, typically used to handle text properties, such as bold, italic, color, or other functionality such as inserting links, images, etc.

To add a video to your posting, simply click the 'video' BBCode button which will insert the following tags into your posting:

Code: Select all
[video][/video]


Then insert the video link from YouTube, Veoh, Vimeo, Google, etc. in between the video BBCode brackets as follows:

Code: Select all
[video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEVBd0ov9hI[/video]


Which will embed the video:



Let's see some videos!

Currently, this lets users add youtube, googlevideo, dailymotion, metacafe. myspace, starsclips, yahoo, photobucket, filefront, veoh, vidilife, gametrailers, vidiac, gamespot, megavideo, vimeo, gamevideos, tu.tv, godtube. myvideo, collegehumor, comedycentral, slideshare, revver, sevenload, clipfish videos to their post.
